One of the best
If I wanted to introduce live Soul Coughing to somebody, I'd show them either NY 1999 or this one... the band just effortlessly gels here. I've had this one in constant rotation even back since the days when I had to listen to it on my iPod! I can say, as a diehard fan, this is the best take of Down To This, everything is just pulled off so cleanly. The mix on this show is great, Mark's samples are just where they need to be and Sabby & Yuval are operating as 1 grooving entity.... the rhythm section!! 5 stars always and forever

Very good show!
If you only download one Soul Coughing show from this archive, make it the one at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC on 10/25/98. The sound and performance are impeccable on that one. If you download 2, as I was prompted to get more after that first one, get this one second. Though the sound isn't as good, the performance is still fantastic.

There aren't that many Soul Coughing shows on the archive, but if you have any, you should have this one. Of course the sound is geat, it's SBD! I burnt it, you should too. Play it for people that have never heard of Soul Coughing. Then look at their reaction. That's what I like to do. It's great to see... -Terrapinbrad

Great variation from recorded work, good sound!
Too bad I never got to see them perform in person. This is another very good concert. Great sound quality for a 95 concert. From their style of music and their heavy use of sampling, I thought there wouldn't be much straying from their recorded work. I was wrong. Excellent! If you are a Soul Coughing fan, you'll love it. If you are not, then God help you.

Ah ... I remember it well
Yes - I was at this concert all those years ago. The quality on this recording is phenomenal and the performances are top rate. Every song has been reinvented somewhat for the live show, so its much different than what you have on the cd ... right down to the Black Sabbath shout-out in the closing song. Highly recommend this to anyone who was not able to see Soul Coughing live, and to anyone who wants to remember ...(tear in my eye).
